  • Meanwhile, stir together the water, lemon juice, 3/4 cup of vegetable oil, tomato puree, onion, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, hot sauce, minced chile, 2 cloves minced garlic, mustard powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 30 minutes until the onions have softened and the sauce has thickened.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-low heat, and lightly oil grate.

  • Remove lamb from marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade. Cook on the preheated grill 1 1/2 to 2 hours, turning and basting frequently with the hot barbeque sauce.

We sliced it and served it in wraps with the sauce - delicious. I will make the sauce again for sure & use it with chicken or any other barbecued meat. Read More

The lamb tasted great. The BBQ sauce recipe was about twice as much as was needed for the roast. I also found the BBQ sauce was too tart so I added about 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I cooked it med. rare (145deg) and it was perfect. I will make this again with the marinade but probably make a different BBQ sauce as it is not really appropriate to for the lamb. Read More

I used the same marinade but used a lamb steak instead. For the BBQ sauce I kept the recipe the same but tweaked it a little by adding about a tablespoon of honey and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Very tasty. I served with polenta and sauted kale Read More

Excellent recipe. Sauce was great, not one of the sugary sauces. Meat stayed juicy. Read More
